Cool Texas

I'm assuming Texas would be considered "Central" or should we be posting in the "Redneck" section!?! Didn't see that one listed! Ride safe, Ya'll.

While I don't live in the Central area, I have roots in Oklahoma and kin in Texas. I also finished my Bachelors at A&M. So "HOWDY" Gary!

Live Long and Ride Hard.

I've spent most of my money on beer, women, motorcycles and guns. The rest I just wasted.

Cool HOWDY back

A warm Texas "Howdy" back at ya, Old Bike Guy. Not sure when you received your degree, but I'll bet it hasn't changed much. The people are still friendly and the ground is still flat here in the Panhandle. We have a few twisties out here, razorbacksrule, but we have to travel farther to find them. Looks like its warm enough to ride the custom to work this morning, so I'd better get packin'. Ya'll take care, now.

Howdy! I was born and raised in Texas, graduated from Texas A&M in `04, and then joined the Navy. I haven't been back to Texas in over a year and I miss it.

It took 9 years and three colleges but I finally finished up at Aggie land in '76. I got a degree, a brand spankin' new Caterpiller cap and a six pack of Lone Star. I still have the cap.

I'm not a native but I got here as fast as I could. :-)

Live near Lubbock and ride whenever I can get the chance (except when it's too windy, I hate the wind!)

Unhappy

I'm with you on the wind, BikerBill, especially on two wheels. Read an article in the Amarillo paper this weekend, an unexpected gust of wind blew a biker off I-27 last week, caused some head injuries.

I'm not a native either. I came down here 1992 to Sheppard AFB and retired in 1999 and just stayed, got a job with the city and am working on my 2nd retirement now. I like it here, the better half wants to go back to Missouri after I retire again, but it's less riding time I tell her. I'm going to lose this one I have a feeling LOL.
